heard about. >> exactly. >> thank you. we're learning new details tonight about the fairfield man arrested for the murder of a 13- year-old girl. 32-year-old anthony lamar jones was taken into custody this morning. he is accused of killing genelle conway allen and dumping her naked body in a fairfield park. we have team coverage tonight. joe vazquez is at allan witt park where a vigil is about to start but we begin with da lin outside the suspect's home. da. >> reporter: fbi agents and police officers spent about 10 hours today searching and collecting evidence from his house which is directly behind me. a gray house. they cleared the scene about 40 minutes ago. anthony lamar jones lives here with his wife and teenaged son. fairfield police shut down
6:01pm
clipper lane so fbi agents could search for evidence in anthony lamar jones' house. they wouldn't tell us what they were looking for inside. but outside fbi agents interviewed neighbors like manuel garcia to find out what they know about the man suspected of killing 13-year- old genelle conway allen. >> strange and quiet. he didn't say much. >> reporter: that's how neighbors describe him, quiet. jones and his family moved in about a year and a half ago. neighbors tell me his wife works but he appears to be unemployed. >> never seen him working, never really seen him like have a job or anything. >> reporter: the arrest shook this fairfield neighborhood. >> super creepy, man. i have my little girl here so, oh, it's creepy but i'm glad they caught the guy. >> sick, really shocking. just seeing the commotion and everything is a lot. >> reporter: fairfield police arrested him around 7 a.m. in the 1100 block of east tabor avenue near where police surveillance camera took the last known photo of genelle last thursday. someone found her nude body in a park the next morning.
6:02pm
>> jones was identified early on as a suspect in this case. since that time he has been under 24-hour surveillance. therefore, there was no danger to the public. >> reporter: fairfield police wouldn't give a motive and whether jones knew the victim. police say jones acted alone in this killing. solano county prosecutors say they will go after the suspect with everything they have. >> the murder of a 13-year-old girl assaults the very core of who we are and what we stand for as a community. >> reporter: prosecutors say jones will appear in court next wednesday. now, the victim's foster mother says that she is overwhelmed with emotion and is very happy that they have someone in custody in this case. >> thank you, da. kpix 5 reporter joe vazquez is at the park where genelle's body was found. joe. >> reporter: yes. there are a lot of people a big crowd gathering they are expecting a lot more, too. let me show you, this is the
6:03pm
candle they are handing out. they are expecting -- they are telling us hundreds of people at this vigil. behind me already, people have gathered. this was a huge kick in the gut for the community a lot of love for 13-year-old genelle conway. people can't believe it happened. there are clergy here, family members and in fact we want to speak to one of the family rita rose who came from yreka to be here. what's going through your mind as we have learned there is an arrest and we see the community gathering? >> first shock that this happened to her and we appreciate everybody showing up. the rest is great. we want justice for genelle and if -- i'm just in shock. the whole thing. but it's great to see the turnout . everybody here for genelle. >> reporter: thank you very much. i know it was a five-hour drive
6:04pm
for you guys. we are expecting perhaps to see genelle's natural mother here and we were told by a pastor just now that in fact the foster family will be arriving. they don't want questions from the media. we are going to honor the distance that they will provide when they get here. so let me tell you, the crowd is getting larger as we speak. we'll bring you more from the scene as the news continues. back to you in san francisco. >> thank you, joe. developing news. a massive manhunt for an ex-cop accused of killing three people including a police officer is now in its second day. there is still no sign of christopher dorner who says in a manifesto he is waging war against the los angeles police department. cbs reporter on the door-to- door search in big bear lake. >> reporter: the possibility exists that he is here somewhere in the forest and so we're going to keep looking. it's day 2 of the manhunt in bear mountain resort. >> i'm not aware of any
6:05pm
survivalist training. but i'm sure that is something that the investigators are looking at. >> our folks just have different clothes and boots on but we are going to continue regardless of the weather. >> reporter: highly trained teams from san bernardino county fire and sheriff's departments are armed with sophisticated tools trekking through the cold snowstorm searching for any sign of christopher dorner. >> we have put our s.w.a.t. guys in a snowcat as well as our armored personnel carriers. we have put chains on. we are up on the mountain on those mountain roads with those pieces of equipment. >> reporter: they continue to focus an an eight-square-mile area mountainous rugged terrain where dorner's torched pickup truck was found. >> the danger is that the fact that he could be out there and they have to be constantly aware and officers' safety is their priority. they have to move slowly and use the training and tactics that they have been using. these are well trained people that are out here.
6:06pm
>> there's about 200 empty cabins that we are going to check one by one. >> reporter: authorities admit today's snowy conditions pose danger and challenges. for now, no aerial searches. >> certainly it would be a little slower to get to each individual area on foot because of the weather. we could see tracks in this kind of condition, snow is great for tracking folks as well as looking at each individual cabin to see if there's any signs of forced entry. >> reporter: sources tell us dorner had survivalist training in alaska. authorities out here would not confirm that information. search teams will end their work here at nightfall and continue throughout the weekend. the mission is to find any clue. in the meantime we're told there will be stepped up patrols out here and authorities say they are looking at every tip, every lead and following up on every alleged sighting but nothing has turned out. i'm suraya fadel in big bear, kpix 5. tens of millions of people are in the path of the blizzard slamming the northeast. from pennsylvania to maine, the
6:07pm
snow is piling up. roads and mass transit systems are also shutting down. and more than 3500 flights have been canceled. dozens of those flights were to and from the bay area airports. kpix 5's roberta gonzales is at sfo with the impact there. roberta. >> reporter: we are here with mobile weather at sfo where currently it is 51 degrees here and there's a bit of a bite in the air due to an increasing wind but that's nothing compared to what's going on on the eastern seaboard right now. earlier today over 60 flights were canceled at sfo due to the weather. meanwhile, as you can imagine, passengers were upset to learn once they arrived here that their flights were canceled. united airlines did something special and created this entire area just for the rebooking of these passengers. the flights are not only just canceled nationally, but internationally. and in fact, here's what one passenger flying from hawaii to
6:08pm
finland had to say. >> i feel that like i should go back to hawaii because we came from hawaii yesterday so why didn't they call us there and say we didn't have to come back? >> i talked to the spokesman for sfo and asked him when flights would be heading back to philadelphia, newscast, laguardia and jfk, newark, as well as boston? he said that will be a decision by each airline but for the most part these passengers with canceled flights today won't leaving the san francisco bay area until tomorrow night or sunday. i asked them to compare this storm with hurricane sandy. he said no comparison. hurricane sandy left a larger footprint meaning it covered a much grander territory on the northeast coast and all the way into miami. so that's the latest from sfo. reporting for mobile weather, roberta gonzales for kpix 5. thank you.
6:09pm
chief meteorologist paul deanno will have more on the path of this storm coming up. checking bay area headlines, late this afternoon, two men were rescued from an overturned sailboat near sfo. emergency crews found the two clinging to the underside of that 19-foot boat there. they were headed to oakland apparently when they got into some trouble. the boat was towed back to shore and the men weren't hurt. alcohol may have been a factor in deadly fall from a high-rise condo in san jose. the 24-year-old woman fell from the 11th floor of a building on west saint james street early this morning. witnesses told police the woman may have been intoxicated. her name hasn't been released. a thief who stole phones from a t-mobile store in concord kind of did it the hard way. he crashed his stolen truck into the store's front window about 6 a.m. this morning. the robber grabbed phones and ran off leaving the truck behind and police are still looking for him. caught on camera. a hidden camera breaking into a home. how a bay area family knew they
6:10pm
would be targeted by this burglar. >> if you don't have an id you can still slide. >> we go undercover and find a surprising way to get through airport security without a government identification. >> did you enjoy the rainfall? we had a little last night and a little this morning. but it is now gone. clear skies over the bay bridge looking from our rooftop. find out if there's any rainfall in the extended forecast coming up. mom, i invited justin over for lunch. good. no, not good. he's a vegetarian and he's going to be here in 20 minutes!

and kpix-5 reporter juliette goodrich tells us: the tape may end up s over the neighbo new at 6:00 a fed-up homeowner uses a hidden camera to fight back against a brazen burglar. kpix 5 reporter juliette goodrich says the tape may end up solving crimes all over the neighborhood. >> reporter: absolutely. liz, neighbors found this flyer under their doormats this week. it's from an anonymous neighbor
6:13pm
who had been burglarized four times. he also took home surveillance video catching the burglar in the act. >> one big thing that i spotted is his adidas. >> reporter: it's not often carla ahern gets a burglar alert flyer like this. in fact, it's a first. >> on three occasions it happened at night while we were home asleep. >> reporter: the anonymous neighbor alerted fellow neighbors and sent home surveillance video to the police and to the danville patch news site for residents to see. watch as the burglar enters the home in broad daylight. apparently he had a house key stolen from a previous break- in. he checks the peep hole several times. >> this is the kick their scared me. he also took our son's piggy bank and electronics. i'm assuming the piggy bank was in the child's room and that just is very, very freaky that he's going into rooms. >> reporter: at one point, the burglar took off his shoes.
6:14pm
before leaving the home, he put his shoes back on and leaves with what looks like a money jar or piggy bank. police say a suspect was arrested but won't release his name. the surveillance video a key piece of evidence. did this lead you to the suspect through the video? >> it helped us but we also have a good knowledge of who lives where and our detectives are very skilled at taking a look at surveillance video and lining it up with people they are already encountered. >> reporter: and to the anonymous neighbor who helped track down a thief, carla says thank you. >> don't think this stuff happens but just keeps you on alert and reminds you to lock doors and windows. >> reporter: this flyer was circulated all over the neighborhood and while the suspect has been arrested, what this does -- what this did was get neighbors to talk to one another and talk about what happened and many of them liz are recalling some incidents they had over the holidays some break-ins and now they are making the connection. >> wow. wow. so this could be connected to
6:15pm
the previous break-ins because this was the only home that was targeted that many times it sounds like, right? >> absolutely. they are talking to other neighbors too that had similar break-ins. they will see if there's a connection. >> thank you, juliette goodrich. the tsa spends billions on airport security. but we discovered there's a surprising way to get through bay area checkpoints. you just need a costco card. we went undercover for an investigation you will only see on kpix 5. >> reporter: whether you travel for business or pleasure, getting on an airplane can be a hassle navigating security. even grandmothers and children don't get a pass. >> i'm about as vanilla as can be. >> reporter: giants pitcher sergio romo had a run-in with security in las vegas after failing to show proper identification according to the tsa. and while most of us travel with a passport or driver's license, it turns out you don't
6:16pm
need either. if you don't have an id you can still slide. we went undercover to each of the bay area's major airports. >> i don't have my driver's license. >> reporter: at sfo, our producer got through with a student id and a couple of personal credit cards. tsa agents said they would accept a costco card. at the oakland airport security there asked for a costco card too. >> costco card. >> reporter: in san jose our producer skated through with a student id. >> it's about validating who you are. so if it's a library card or a costco card or if it's a school i.d. card, they are not all government identification but at least it's printed with your name on it that we can say yes this is who that person is. then there is an additional screening process at the security checkpoint. >> reporter: that was the case only when our producer showed up with no wallet or documentation at all. tsa simply took our producer aside and asked a series of secondary questions. >> do you live here in oakland? ro. but in less than 20 minutes our producer was cleared to go
6:17pm
and got into the terminal. at all three airports, our producer got by with minimal nongovernment identification and not subject to secondary checks. federal law doesn't require it. the tsa's website said not having an id does not necessarily mean that a passenger won't be allowed to fly. a security problem says an aviation security expert. >> every time you introduce a vulnerability, our adversary is going to take advantage of that. >> reporter: he adds, don't expect to see a change in that requirement anytime soon. >> it is very difficult in this democracy to get some things done absent a disaster and that's sad. >> the tsa says the physical check points are the last but not necessarily the most important safety measure. other security steps taken before check-in are more critical. speaking of airports, massive delays here in san francisco for folks trying to head back east and, of course, all the airports back east.
6:18pm
>> so many nonstop flights from here to the east coast, those flights are just stopped right now. there's a big storm going on. snowfall coming down at a rate of 4.5" per hour. that is extremely heavy snow. right through the heart of long island where you see that dark blue and band stretches over hartford all the way back to boston and on the cape. east of boston we are looking at winds tonight 70 to 75 miles per hour. big-time problems there for us, truckload full of nothing for us. high-def doppler radar shows showers out of here for hours. we'll stay dry for a while. i'll show you how long coming up in a second. beautiful night outside. it will be chilly. these were today's highs. 52 for san jose. san francisco 52. napa 58. mid-50s force redwood city, kentfield and concord. cool skies, clearing off rapidly many of you in the 30s
6:19pm
before midnight. low pressure shifted south. some got half inch of rain but widespread between a tenth and quarter inch which is not enough to break the deficit but it helps. now it's out of here. high pressure off to our west is going to stay there. it will be close enough to keep us sunny and dry and since it's off to the west we are getting a northerly flow which will keep us around normal temperature-wise for the next several days. and with high pressure not going anywhere for the next week, we're looking at 10 hours of sunshine all the way through valentine's day. it's all about the sunshine. clear skies at night means 30s away from the water down near freezing inland. and tomorrow will be the chilliest day of the next several. it will be pretty chilly mid- 50s that's it. fremont 56, vallejo 57, oakland you will hit the upper 50s. 59 degrees for a high. your extended forecast is sunshine across the board every day. full sunshine all the way through next friday.
6:20pm
milder next week too. we're looking at mid-60s wednesday, thursday and friday. this is extraordinary. in the heart of our rainy season to not even be talking about a cloud let alone rainfall. >> not a puff of a cloud. >> not even. no clouds. nothing. >> couldn't even come up with a joke. >> enjoy the sunshine. >> thank you. he made a statement without saying a word at the world series parade. tonight we'll know the real story behind sergio romo's t- shirt. >> the countdown to the opening of the new bay bridge span is on. kpix 5 is proud to be the official television station for the opening ceremonies in september. and we will be keeping you posted on plans for that big day.

keeping an eye on it. the couch you're sitting on is likely filled with toxic chemicals. but today, california took a big step towards reducing the chemicals in new couches. as kpix 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts explains, fire retardants in furniture could be on the way out. reporter: when it comes to choosing a couch for most it's the covering that counts. >> it's a leather --tan leather couch. >> soft, plush, about eight feet long. >> artificial suede so it's made out of little bottles, little plastic bottles. >> it's green and i like it. >> reporter: but starting next year some coverings could be off the market. what's inside the couch are likely be changing too. today california unveiled a proposed fire safety standard for couches and other foam filled furniture to stop the widespread use of toxic flame retardant chemicals in your couch that cause harm including to children.
6:38pm
>> i am so delighted. so thrilled. >> reporter: environmental scientists arlene bloom said the change would mean there's no longer a need for furniture makers to use toxic flame retardants inside the furniture. >> 85% of our furniture already meets a smolder standard. >> reporter: under the in proposal couch fabric will be required to withstand a smolder test meaning it won't catch fire when in contact with a smoldering object like a cigarette, heater or extension cord. current standards require the foam inside the furniture withstand a 12 second exposure to a small open flame. that requires those chemical flame retardants something fire scientists say is counterintuitive because it's the fabric that catches first. >> tests method that's used is much more realistic on how things catch on fire. >> reporter: he says the new standard is much safer. and he is one of many that says it's long overdue. >> it's a win-win situation. >> reporter: now, the proposal goes through a six-week public comment period before a final standard is adopted. meanwhile, the chemical industry maintains these flame retardants are safe. if you have a consumer problem,

but when google flies in here with expanding fleet of private executive jets it will be one of the happiest landings of all. >> it just makes sense that google the high-tech leader here in both the south bay as well as the world really is choosing to make silicon valley's airport their home too. >> reporter: mineta san jose is announcing a major agreement with signature flight support google's main provider of aircraft to build and operate a new $82 million executive terminal on 29 acres of what used to be a long-term parking lot on the airport's west side. >> google proposes to bring their fleet here including large aircraft including 787s and 767s. >> why stop at google? why not apple, foxconn? >> reporter: airport officials say the new terminal will serve other corporate clients. >> international flights, you know, from here to anywhere and
6:44pm
to san francisco how great is that? perfect. >> reporter: the airport's proximity to google's mountain view headquarters was one of the major selling points. for san jose, the deal means another $2.6 million in annual rent, nearly half a million dollars in annual jet fuel sales, up to $300,000 a year in taxes, and hundreds of construction jobs and 36 full- time jobs. the deal still needs to be approved by the san jose city council and they will say a proposal this spring but considering all the benefits to the airport at a time when it needs a boost, it's considered pretty much a done deal. len ramirez kpix 5. i don't know what you're expecting to see but cbs is asking stars not to show too much skin at the grammy awards this sunday. the network's dress code says private parts should be completely covered for the show. no see-through clothing. the memo comes nine years after

6:47pm
think that in our rainy season, 36 of those 39 days had been partly or mostly sunny. the next 7 days will each be partly or mostly sunny. we have dennis o'donnell live at pebble beach for the big tournament this weekend. it's all about the sunshine and chilly on the peninsula mid- 50s. that's it for highs. but a lot of sunshine, beautiful february weather for the golfers who are in the area for the weekend. water vapor loop shows you that big counterclockwise swirl the upper level low pressure that gives you showers overnight last night and perhaps for the morning commute this morning. it's moving out and drier stable air is moving in. high pressure literally is higher pressure. it's sinking air. air needs to go up to make a cloud, further to make a rainfall. air going down opposite of that you get sunshine. this high is going to be with us for the next seven to 10 days shoving that storm track the lower pressure areas about 900 miles north. you get 10 hours of sunshine every day all the way until
6:48pm
this time next week. so sunshine. we'll have it for a while. lows in the 30s away from the water because of the clear nights. 60s for much of next week. 59 tomorrow for oakland, san jose chilly 57. fremont 56. pleasant hill 58 by late afternoon tomorrow. saturday mill valley chilly sunny. novato tomorrow 57. your extended forecast is nothing but sunshine. every part of the bay area -- i know we have lots of microclimates and temperatures can change but we'll all enjoy the sunshine through next friday with highs in the mid- to upper 60s. some of you in the south bay may get close to 70 by next thursday and friday. speaking of the golf tournament, dennis is coming up next with sports.

6:53pm
